Interessante. Ma esiste qualcuno in Italia che lo usa?

Dear freegis list,

The 52°North Geoprocessing Community is proud to announce the release of
the Web Processing Service Version 2.0! This new release contains the
following changes and extensions:

    * *Sextante (http://www.sextantegis.com/en/index.htm) processes
      integration*: the current 52N WPS now provides more than 220
      Sextante geoalgorithms
      <http://forge.osor.eu/plugins/wiki/index.php?id=13&type=g>) as
      real WPS processes. Sextante support can easily be
      enabled/disabled and does not hinder custom developments of
      individual processes.
    * *GRID support*: any existing process or algorithm can be reused
      and distributed in the grid for parallel execution. This release
      enables the user to easily outsource geoprocessing tasks to an
      external data processing center. It fully supports the widely
      adopted UNICORE 6 grid middleware. In addition, it is possible to
      support other grid middlewares (e.g. Globus Tookit 4). No
      administrative access to the grid infrastrucutre is necessary,
      only a valid certificate for accessing the target system is required.
    * i*nternal architecture redesign* with new flexible bindings of
      different internal datastructures (e.g. Geotools Datamodel)
    * *support for (very large) rasters*
    * *new Geotiff parser and generator*
    * i*mproved asychronous datahandling + download of stored files*
    * *several bugfixes*
    * *extended Tutorial*: it guides the user through the process of
      setting up the 52N WPS, creating a new process, as well as
      executing and exporting the process. * *

The 52N Web Processing Service enables the deployment of geo-processes
on the web. It features a pluggable architecture for processes and data
encodings. The implementation is based on the current OpenGIS
specification: 05-007r7.
